Categories : Apple II Emulate

There are  many projects related to ESP8266.  However, no working Apple 2 emulator that actually run Apple 2 games. I decided to build one myself. I started this project last year.
Depends on the choice of display and keyboard, the hardware of Apple 2 emulator can be very simple. The most simplest option is video out and PS2 keyboard. The circuit only consist of a few pieces of resistors and capacitors.

When considered the availiabily and flexibility, I prefer USB for the keyborad interface.

The first design  was video out and USB keyboard and  the  second version used LCD instead of video out.

 

 

Recently, I redesign the PCB so that it suitable for two LCD size.

 

Features:

1. 65C02 CPU
2. 64K Ram
3. nib, dsk,po floppy disk images
4. hdv, 2mg HDD images
5. USB keyboard
6. build-in speaker
7. simple joypad emulation use keyboard
8. Lithum Battery operated.

Here shows the demostration:
